The Grand Cock Fight

It seems that the majority of people hollering about diversity have no idea what it is.  The concept of open borders and racial quotas and stuffing as many different kinds of people in a room as allowed by fire code is NOT diversity.  If you are someone who believes it is, then hang on, you are about to get an education.

Diversity means a variety, a range, a set of different things.  Mom's vegetable medley is not diversity, the ingredients are diverse.  Once they are mixed into a lump, they are not longer diverse, but part of a new whole.  Diversity is not forcing all different kinds of people to live together and like each other.  That is social engineering.

Not that we know what diversity is NOT, let's look at what it really is, and see why all this whining and chest-beating over "diversity" is completely wrong.

If I try to force you to live with 20 people from other cultures, I am not practicing diversity.  I am trying to create a homogeneity from diverse subjects.  When people talk about forcing one group to accept another, they are actually being the complete opposite of diverse.

Diversity is when you allow people to live apart in their own cultures and with their own kind.  When you support and encourage people to be different, you are being diverse.  Real diversity is enjoying and relishing the differences.

Synthesis is when you pour a variety of things or people into a confined space and make them adopts each other's characteristics, so that a new whole emerges that is not equal to the sum of the parts.

Forcing Germans to accept Muslim neighbors is not diversity.  Diversity is leaving the Germans and the Muslims alone and allowing them to have their own separate identities and cultures.  A German no more wants to have the local mosque hollering at all hours of the day, mutilate their children's genitals and eliminate dogs, any more than a Muslim wants to wear liederhosen, eat pork sausage and do the chicken dance.  These are incompatible cultures, and the truly diverse person recognizes and celebrates the incompatibilities.

The whole idea that we all have to live together and get along is ludicrous.  Why?  What point does it serve?  If I don't like pork sausages, I move somewhere that doesn't have them, or I shut up and let the local folks enjoy their dinners.  You do not move into someone else's culture and immediately force them to accommodate your tastes.

This wrong-headed "diversity" movement is creating more problems than it could ever solve.  When cultures are left alone and folks can live however they want in their lands, everyone is happy and leaves everyone else alone.

When incompatible cultures are forced together and the local culture is told at the point of a gun that it must accommodate the invading culture, no matter how distasteful, then one is creating a recipe for war.  Anyone who reads history knows that.

However, diversity is not what the elites want.  They don't care whether Germans and Muslims can live in harmony and peace.  That's not what they want.  They want chaos, terror and hate, because there's profit in it.

In the world, there are three basic types of people: natives who are a product of a culture, tourists who want to sample foreign culture, and travelers who immerse themselves in foreign culture.  What all three have in common is that they perceive "My" culture and "Their" culture, and at the end of the day they can go "Home" to a culture that is distinctly their own.

THAT is diversity.

The thing that is called "diversity" by certain groups today denies on basic principle that is the basis of peace and harmony: Home.  It denies me the right to go someplace where I can be with people like me   It is denial of a fundamental right of human beings to call one group "us" and another group "them."

The ultimate goal of the "diversity" nuts is to create a synthesis of all peoples and cultures, so there is no longer an "us" and "them."  We all look, act, eat, worship, talk, and live the same, so no one is "above" or "below" another.  Little do they know that this is an unachievable goal.

I have lived in many places and with many cultures.  The one thing I have found everywhere is that everyone needs someone to shit on.  It is a fact of human nature and it ain't gonna change any time soon.  Every single person on Earth defines themselves as being better than this one, but worse than that one.

Even if the entire world looked alike and had all the same things, people would find something that separated them from someone else.  I don't care how idealistic or hopeful you are, it will not change the human condition.

In Indonesia, where everyone has brown skin, dark eyes and black hair, they define each other on character traits of groups, on clothing styles, on architecture, on location, on food.  To an observer, you would think everyone would be happy because they all look alike and live on islands, but that is definitely not the case.  There is no homogeneity here, no matter how similar folks may seem to a third party.

There is no way in hell the "diversity" movement, as it is currently defined, will ever succeed.  There are only three possible outcomes: the outsider assimilates, the host culture is assimilated, or a synthetic new culture is created.  In none of these cases can diversity be said to have succeeded.

New York City is a perfect example of "diversity."  Neighborhoods, even only a couple of blocks square, take on the culture of the people who live there.  There's a Greek area, an Italian area, a Russian area, and a Jewish area.  Within those areas, there are native restaurants and shops, the native language is spoken, and gangs form as a kind of native law enforcement.  This is the result of "diversity."  None of them get along, and peace is only maintained by each group respecting the territory of the others, and having their own respected in return.

"Diversity" is a fantasy.  It's a Utopian pipe-dream of everyone living together, holding hands and singing Kumbaya.  And it has one defining feature: it fails every time it is tried.  It is not how people are wired.  We are cheetahs whose spots are set and will never change.  The spots will never become stripes, no matter how much it is decreed from on high.

It is clear, at least to me, that there is a group of elites who find it suitable to thrust all these cultures into one arena.  Like oil and water, they will never mix, and ultimately the cultures will clash violently until the proverbial last man stands.

Perhaps that's the goal: get us all to eradicate each other so that the elites are the last remaining culture, and they win by default while having "clean" hands.

It's like a grand cock fight.  The two bantams battle to the death, while the spectators bet on which will win.  Ultimately, the cocks lose and the spectators win, no matter how you slice it.

I prefer real diversity.
